The Bordeaux game on Thursday night has to be a season’s highlight so far, as a side on a tremendous run of form (seventeen matches unbeaten) were ruthlessly taken apart in a result that gives us a great chance to progress from the Europa League group stage.
When Cisse’s brilliantly taken third went in to kill the game as a contest it was a great moment to celebrate the achievement of this result – or rather it should have been, ruined as it was by a pathetic little man running onto the pitch with everything hanging out and providing a spectacle that no one wanted to see for the entertainment of only himself.
I have several issues with this.
First of all, the stewarding was exceptionally rubbish, letting simple sod carry on his unfunny act of appalling attention seeking for far too long before they waded in with some roundly cheered digs.
Secondly, these games are often used as opportunities for parents to bring kids along with the reasonable ticket pricing and availability of seats, so how are we letting people who seem to take great pleasure in exposing their genitals to young children, into the ground?
This was the second Europa game in a row that this has happened (although at least the first bloke was on and off as opposed to the sad bore-fest that micro-man exposed us to the other night) and I’d hope that the majority of Newcastle fans would actively discourage this kind of act and use force to restrain any potential child flasher in his future endeavours.
Finally, there’s a possibility here that if this sort of behaviour continues, the club are going to get into bother, with fines and even points deductions mooted when pricks who can’t behave, spoil football matches.
In two weeks time we will be facing the mackems at their plastic pink hovel, where any miscarriage of justice will be celebrated by several idiots marauding onto the pitch in a pitiful display of exteme SMB-ism.
I would hope that at Newcastle we have slightly better decorum about running on the pitch, waiting until there’s a title won (even if its a second tier one) or even if there’s something original planned that doesn’t justify inclusion on the child sex register.
I am confident though, that unlike the mackems, we have a very very very small minority of this type (and I mean very small, it wasn’t that cold).
Hopefully the majority will act quicker next time they see a disrobed pervert heading for the advertising hoardings.
